  1. Hi Robert, Make sure you've got the _very_ latest build, and that you explicitly select your media folder under Manage Pictures and Movies again -- previous builds had trouble when the media folder was at the root level of a hard drive (still not a good practice--should always be in a subfolder) -Pete
  2. It looks like there's a problem with your Crystal Reports installation (a popular reporting module used by ComicBase, numerous other programs). Try running this service pack for it here, then retrying the ComicBase install: -Pete https://www.dropbox.com/s/664lc3oo6iwhqit/CR13SP29Redist32_0-10010309.ZIP?dl=1
  3. Not directly--you'd have to give us a call and have us clear it out of the server queue. -Pete
  4. The items from the phone hang out as "unprocessed" until they're synched with your home database via Check for New sales and Purchases. There isn't currently a way to get a report of what you just added, although it's a decent idea for the future. It's maybe worth noting that the iPhone app is cool, but it's not great for heavy data entry due to the mechanics of steadying your phone as you scan a barcode, etc. -- it's really _much_ faster to use a real barcode scanner for heavy work. The iPhone/Android app is most at home doing more casual entry (like when you're at a show and stuck in a hotel room with your new purchases). -Pete
  5. Hi Jeff, The serial # would have been issued to you right when you upgraded. Make sure you're logging in with the same account you purchased from, and contact support@comicbase.com if you need help. -Pete
  6. For anyone still having permissions issues when installing: - I posted a new build (1209) -- which removes the permission setting in the ProgramData folder which we used to need to do to have themes work. This hasn't been a problem for most users, but if that's what's causing your machine to hack up a hairball, this may fix it for you. PLEASE give it a shot and let me know--good or bad--whether this solved it for you. - If it didn't, please send me a note at support@comicbase.com with your phone # and the best time to call you -- I _really_ want to put this issue to bed if possible before we publicize the release widely. Thanks! -Pete
  7. If you get a chance, give us a call Monday at 408-266-6883 and we'll help you out. -Pete
  8. Took a second whack at it: build 1209, where I also changed it from lastname/firstname on characters when typing
  9. Build 1200 (released now) changes the algorithm for appearance indexing to no longer strip off parentheticals. To take advantage of the change, you'll need to (1) Update to build 1200 (out now) and run through File > File Tools > Rebuild Lists > Lists of contributors, storylines, and notes. (The latter step is not needed if you're upgrading from a previous version of ComicBase directly to build or later, as the upgrade from a previous version forces a rebuild of those contributor lists anyway in order to enable Psychic Typing 2.0 -Pete
  10. Try deleting the old one first--it's likely blocking the new install, since they had the same name.
  11. Hi Matthew, It's for Archive Editions only (so if you have Pro, Express, or Free, it's not there) -- if you do have Archive Edition, go to your Windows menu and type "Screen saver". "Change Screen Saver" will come up as an option; choose it. Then, choose the "ComicBase Cover Gallery" screen saver and you're off to the races. -Pete
  12. Stephen: Let's follow up via a separate thread--this one's getting packed with unrelated material. Can you give me a call at 408-266-6883 so we can solve your issue (it's different than the others) -Pete
  13. Anyone having this particular issue: Please give me a call at 408-266-6883 so we can set up a remote session and investigate. Would really like to get whatever the underlying conflict is sorted out ASAP. (You can also send me email directly at support@comicbase.com, if the phones don't ring through due to the hour/holiday) -Pete
  14. Have a look at build 1191 (just posted) -- it does a bit more sophisticated job of figuring out whether you're attempting to copy/paste whole cells, or the individually selected text in a cell, without relying on the context menu (right-click) for the individual cell copy/paste. -Pete
